ABSTRACT
This article presents information on country risk assessment of Taiwan as of January 2004. Chinese military officers have said that the recent drive towards independence by Taiwan's top leadership could push the island towards the abyss of war. The comments seem to indicate a change in Beijing's policy towards the mainland, which in the past couple of years has attempted to play down the risk of conflict. Taiwan's short-term political risk rating remains on 71 following fall in December 2003 to take account of the March 2004 presidential elections in Taiwan. Taiwan's index of leading economic indicators rose to a three-year high of 1.7% in October 2003, mainly due to rising export orders and higher share prices. Taiwan's economic prospects have received a boost in recent months with the improvement in the global economy, and an improvement in the high-sector in particular.
